  •  Adams inks with Lincoln Christian
    Friday, October 28, 2016 4:00 AM
    LINDEN – North Montgomery senior hoop star Becca Adams signed a letter of intent to continue her basketball career at Lincoln Christian College in Lincoln, Ill. The town is about two hours west of here. The Red Lions compete in the NAIA division of NCAA basketball. 
    “The first time I visited the campus it felt like one big family,” Adams said Thursday before signing. “We went to a basketball game on the visit and the starting point guard for the men’s team came up and introduced himself to us.”
    That first visit was her sophomore year and she said she fell in love with the school right away. It was the only school she visited.
    “It was a pretty easy decision for me,” Adams said.

  • Macy Zachary tops soccer ranks
    Friday, October 28, 2016 4:00 AM
    NEW MARKET – One girl stood out above the rest of the Montgomery County soccer players this season. That girls was Southmont junior Macy Zachary. Zachary scored 40 goals this season, breaking her own school record, as she led the Mounties to a county championship for the second straight season. That effort was good enough to earn her honors as The Paper of Montgomery County’s Girls’ Soccer Player of the Year. 
    The 40 goals broke the record of 26 that Zachary set as a sophomore. As fun as scoring is, Zachary said that she enjoys a broader view of the game. 
    “I like seeing plays come together all the way up until scoring . . . that’s fun too,” Zachary said. “We had a really good group this year and everyone came together this season.”

    Another quad battle at the 22nd Annual AMSOIL Ironman GNCC that comes down to the last round is the UTV National Championship. Class rookie and Can-Am/DWT/Houser Racing/Elka Suspension/HMF's Cody Miller leads the championship chase, but defending champion Kyle Chaney sits within striking distance with his Can-Am/Chaney Racing/CT Race Worx/Maxxis/Fox Shocks-backed machine. Miller has yet to finish off the podium, while Chaney has faced some difficulties earlier this season. Only 26 points separate the top two contenders heading into the final round. Whatever the circumstances may be, the title will be awarded after the conclusion of the one-hour race.

  •  Indians invade North Montgomery
    Thursday, October 27, 2016 4:00 AM
    LINDEN – Twin Lakes makes the trip South to battle North Montgomery in a rematch of last year’s Sectional semi-final that saw the Chargers defeat their visitors from Monticello, 37-0.
    The Indians advanced to the rematch this season by avenging an earlier loss to Hamilton Heights, beating them 28-14. They enter the contest at 3-7 while the Chargers sit at 5-5.
    “Twin Lakes has shown to be a run dominant team in the games we have seen,” said Charger head coach Josh Thompson. “It has been a benefit for us to play run oriented teams in back-to-back weeks (speaking of last week’s 14-0 win over Crawfordsville).”

    Is it just me or did the fall sports season fly by in super-fast mode this year. We are down to the last team standing. North football is still alive in the state tournament and hoping to advance even further into the sectional. The Chargers will take on a 3-7 Twin Lakes team.
    I enjoy the time in between seasons as we start working on the player of the year stories and I get to come up with picture ideas to feature our county’s standout athletes.

    The second week of the football state tournament is quickly approaching. North Montgomery (5-5) is the lone Montgomery County team still in the mix, but the Sagamore Athletic Conference has plenty of representation. 
    The Chargers advanced at the expense of the Crawfordsville Athenians, 14-0. They’ll take on Twin Lakes (3-7) in round two of Class 3A Sectional 28. On the other side of that sectional Western Boone (6-4) will look to move the SAC forward if they can upset an 8-2 West Lafayette squad that’s ranked fourth in the state. The Red Devils are favored to win the sectional.

    On Nov. 17 the Crawfordsville School of Karate is holding a fund-raising event for St. Jude Children’s Research Hospital so that all kids can have a fighting chance. The Crawfordsville School of Karate will be hosting a Kick-a-Thon, but fund raising of any type is welcome to help this wonderful cause.
    St. Jude Children’s Research Hospital was founded in 1961 by entertainer Danny Thomas with the idea that ‘no child should die in the dawn of life.’ It is dedicated to finding cures for childhood catastrophic diseases. When the hospital was opened the survival rate for ALL (the most common form of leukemia) was less than 4 percent. Today, thanks to their life-saving research, the survival rate has risen to over 94 percent. The research and findings are shared worldwide by St. Jude so that all children have a chance of surviving.

    NEW CARLISLE – The cross country season has come to an end for Montgomery County, but not be-fore spectacular performances from five county athletes at the New Prairie Semi-State. From fields of nearly 180 athletes, county athletes performed very well, although none were able to advance to the state meet. 
    The top finisher from Montgomery County was Southmont’s Brooks Long on the boys’ side. He fin-ished 53rd out of a field of 179. It took Long just 16:53.80. The top six teams advanced as well as the next 10 individuals from schools not advancing. Long was the 27th such individual. Crawfordsville’s Riley Fyffe also showed very well with a 94th place finish at the semi-state.

    Senior quarterback Connor Rice threw for a career-high 307 yards and two touchdowns to lead Wa-bash to a 34-24 win over the College of Wooster. The Little Giants improved to 6-1 on a festive Family Day.
    Rice was laser-sharp in connecting on 22-of-27 passes and found seven different receivers. Sopho-more Oliver Page caught eight passes for 146 yards, while sophomore Ryan Thomas and senior Sammy Adams each caught first-half touchdown strikes.
    Coach Don Morel praised his senior captain for both his passing and his leadership.
